Fudge!

The stall it caught you unawares

and for a while all you did was stare

at the sweet and flavourful things on display

you bought a bag, and made your way

your favourite things held in a bag

like some sweet toothed burglars swag

coconut, cherry, vanilla and cream

all sat in a bag – your sweet tooth’s dream

but now you find its gone half past six

and you find yourself in an almighty fix

for the sweet stuff can wait – to a degree

as dad has made sausages for tea

so you wait for a while – and enjoy your tea

whilst the cubes of sweetness wait with glee

till your taste buds start to jump and stomp

and on pieces of fudge – you do chomp

Post Christmas Pressies

#Christmas #Hidden #Sweets

7th January 2019

I received an extra present yesterday.

I’d been wandering what dad was going on about when he mentioned an extra present at the end of Christmas time

I’d enjoyed seeing the brightly coloured baubles on the Christmas tree, especially the new larger ones. They were twinkly inside. I just guessed they were part of the decoration

Time came and each of the baubles came off the branches of the tree

and Dad told me of his secret….The twinkly baubles actually contained SWEETS. The foil wrapping reflected the lights off the tree

and in one of the big round baubles , all coloured red was my special surprise – a bag of vanilla fudge.

Stop press….it’s not just my dear old dad hiding stuff in baubles. My provider of hot chocolate has been at it too…delivered on 7th January. so now there’s another metal bauble for the Christmas tree.

A colourful place

Imaginary

The seeds of creativity

come from a blank page

ideas held in seed form

spread and grow in the mind

a pencil, sandwich and cream soda

the architects tools

as rainbows cast across lemonade seas

marshmallow clouds and fudge trees

provide perfect plates

for a teddy bears picnic

A Tale of a Biscuit Tin

In response to The Daily Post’s writing prompt: “Ready, Set, Done!.”

In my room, on the top of a cupboard by my writing desk, lives a relatively old biscuit tin.  Its Metallic red in colour and has the main characters of the Winnie-the-Pooh stories on it.

There’s Winnie-the-pooh (or as I like to call him ‘Pooh Bear’), his small friend Piglet, His not so gloomy friend – Eeyore the donkey and his Bouncy friend, Tigger.  The outside rim of the tin has pictures associated with the Hundred Acre Wood where they live in the stories, namely bees and their hives and butterflies.

At the moment – the tin isn’t being used for anything sweet…more to hold the device used to buy something sweet,  Odd stray coppers, and silver coins liberally adorn the gold coloured base of the tin.  At Christmas, the coins will vacate to be used for the next occupants – namely bags of fudge or sweets and later, biscuits – which will be the ones made for the tree itself – made of shortbread and tasting of vanilla honey or chocolate (Pooh Bear would appreciate that a lot)

After Christmas, the biscuits will be long gone – so with the coins away at the bank and the tin lying empty – Honey Cakes will be a perfect replacement (with Easter around the corner), as will the various flavours of fudge which appear around my birthday time.  My Favourite Flavour – Chocolate, but I’ve had everything from Strawberry to Coconut fudge in that tin…and everytime I’ve opened it for a treat there’s always been a little someone pop their head round the kitchen door to see what’s inside it.
